Evolve SIU

Evolve, SIU, Carbondale

Southern Illinois University has been around since 1869, but recently there was a talk about closing the school down.

Enrollment has decreased over the past 14 years and has only seen two increases which were both under 1%.The constant declines in enrollment is putting the school in jeopardy of losing money. Most of these issues are arising from the budget dilemma with the state of Illinois. The plus side from these lower numbers mean class sizes are also smaller. The student to faculty ratio is 15:1. This makes it easier for students to learn and to get one-on-one help from teachers. This also puts a big hurt on the housing situation for students well except for one. Evolve Apartments has continued to lead the market in leasing year over year.


Evolve Apartments was built in 2015 and opened at 100% full.
